Congratulations, Sarah!

Sarah Galvin, owner of The Bookstore Plus in Lake Placid along with husband Marc, was interviewed for James Patterson’s newest biography, The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians!

It’s a celebration of the world of books and is filled with true stories from the booksellers and librarians—the superheroes of reading. In the book you’ll meet the smart and talented people who live between the pages—and who can’t wait to help you find your next favorite book… after all, helping people find their next favorite book is one of the best parts of the job.

Sarah says, “A huge thank you to authors James Patterson and Matt Eversmann for including our story in your storytelling. Being a bookseller is such an honor and we loved reading about other people’s experiences in this wonderful industry! Thank you!”
